About this book
What does it mean to be English? In a world of religious fundamentalism and terrorism, and the rise of the BNP, what does patriotism actually mean? The critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Billy Bragg examines these issues and more in this urgent, eloquent and passionate response to the events of 7th July 2005.
What does it mean to be English? What does it mean to be British? Is the cross of St George a proud symbol of a great tradition, or the badge of a neo-Nazi? Our identity can change depending on what company we are in. This book presents insights and offers a positive hope for a country teetering on the brink of catastrophe.
